Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation (CVLS) volunteers and staff attorneys represent low-income Chicagoans (the working poor) in a wide variety of civil matters, including divorce, custody, adult and minor guardianships, adoption, mortgage foreclosure defenses (including cases involving fraud and predatory lending) tort defense, immigration, taxation, consumer contract issues, collection defense, bankruptcy, and landlord-tenant matters (including evictions, representing either landlords or tenants). They also draft powers of attorney and living/testamentary wills. While much of our work involves litigation, we also handle administrative and non-litigation matters. CVLS’ caseload is heavily weighted to family law, real estate and consumer issues. Supporting volunteers is a priority for CVLS staff.
